Last  update  23 April  2014

This meetup changes periodically according the interest of people who attend the meetups regularly. In the past we have explored the principles of a Good Society with the help of Kenneth Galbraith's book in informal dialogue.

A wide range of other topics can also feature on our interest list. For example, recently we discussed the book "Metaphors We Live By" by G Lackoff and M Johnson, "Organic Universe" by Italian astrophysicist Giuliana Conforto.

During 2011 a serious proposal for a Global Cooperative Forum, as outlined in Not-two Is Peace formed the guiding theme.

Currently (Spring 2012) we engage with the rising importance of commons in public awareness due to the economic and financial crisis and the emerging Occupy movement as a response.

In addition to these monthly meetings, there are weekly meetings elsewhere under slightly "different management". You are welcome to join them. A shared vision and common enterprise is deeply rooted in talk about things that matter.

The cartoon caption at the top left symbolizes the idea that our world is in the midst of an evolutionary paradigm shift.

A world, we can barely imagine*, is possible; but like any birth, there is no guarantee that it will be successful without assistance.

It can be the birth of a new species---a fully human species---or the death of

us (NOT the death of Earth)

In other words, it is Utopia or Oblivion, as one of the prophets of this possible world summed up the future of our species.

*How can a caterpillar imagine being a butterfly; how can a choking, cramped chick-embryo think of being a breathing, running, eating chicken?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
